Actor Will Poulter would probably be a failure if he had to pursue a profession outside of acting.
Most of Will's family members have jobs in the medical profession, as his father is a cardiology professor while the star's mother and sister are both nurses.
The 23-year-old is receiving acclaim for his depiction of young fur trapper Jim Bridger in The Revenant and he is happy to be enjoying such great success in his career, because Will can't imagine doing anything else.
"They all do far more important jobs than me, and get a lot less attention and reward for it," he told UK newspaper The Independent, referring to his relatives. "Not that I could follow in their footsteps even if I wanted to – I didn't exactly have a host of amazing science grades. I had nothing else going for me at school. I lived for my one lesson of drama a week."

The Cast Of Leonardo Dicaprio's Acclaimed Drama The Revenant Were Unreachable During The Bleak Shoot In Canada As They Gave Up Their Cell Phones During Filming.
British actor Will Poulter was among the castmembers who endured freezing conditions on the remote set to appear alongside Leonardo and Tom Hardy in the movie, which is based on the story of real life frontiersman Hugh Glass.
The Maze Runner star has now revealed his family and friends struggled to contact him during the shoot because the castmembers "parted ways" with their cell phones.
"We were shooting in such remote areas... This is the first time any of the cast have been able to text each other because it's the first time we have had signal," Will tells BBC Breakfast. "We parted ways with our phones... We parted ways with our phones for the almost the entire period. I was a nightmare to get hold of... for my family. (But) it was quite nice actually (giving up the phone)."

The actors feature as 19th century frontiersmen alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy in the new thriller, and although the movie has scored four nods, including Best Motion Picture - Drama, Domhnall and Will will not get to walk the red carpet at the Los Angeles ceremony.

"I don't think so...," Will began after an awkward moment of silence. "Potentially."

A wrenching saga of survival and revenge, Alejandro G. Inarritu's new epic is just as technically astounding as his Oscar-winning previous film Birdman. But it's a much muddier and bloodier, set in a a snowy, mountainous Wild West in which everything is a potentially fatal hazard. There may be some human villains on hand, but it's Mother Nature who holds the cards.
At the edge of civilisation in the 1820s, a group of fur trappers led by Henry (Domhnall Gleeson) is ambushed by a ferocious mob of Native Americans led by Chief Elk Dog (Duane Howard), who is looking for his kidnapped daughter. As the trappers flee from the attack, they are assisted by the guide Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), who knows these mountains because he has gone native, adopting an orphaned teen boy named Hawk (Forrest Goodluck), who now accompanies him. But as the survivors make their escape, Glass is badly mauled by a grizzly bear. Henry assigns the compassionate Bridger (Will Poulter) and the more cynical Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) to take care of him. But Fitzgerald snaps, leaving Glass for dead. Against the odds, Glass recovers and sets out to get vengeance.
The title refers to someone who comes back from the grave, which is literally what happens to Glass. And DiCaprio plays him with fire-eyed intensity that vividly shows his tenacious will to survive. Moody flashbacks reveal his back-story, and why living means so much to him. It's one of DiCaprio's most viscerally moving performances. Opposite him, Hardy is a bundle of unpredictable, terrifying rage, thankfully balanced by the expressively sympathetic Poulter and Gleeson's alert commander, the only person who takes the time to measure his thoughts. They're surrounded by a terrific supporting cast of sparky actors who appear briefly but memorably.

Even the lighter moments in this dark Irish drama are tinged with sadness, including a scene in which a tormented mother and son escape through dancing together ... to the strains of Soft Cell's Tainted Love. But the film is anchored by such a solid performance by Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction) that it's definitely worth a look.
Reynor plays John, a young guy in Dublin working extra shifts as a cab driver to support his alcoholic mother Jean (Toni Collette) and his younger brother Kit (Harry Nagle), who has been institutionalised with Down's Syndrome and is never visited by his mum, not even on his 18th birthday. But then she's too busy drinking herself into serious illness. John's only support comes from his best pal Sean (Will Poulter), who has problems of his own as his ex (Maria Carlton) is demanding cash to support their young child. When Sean opts to move abroad to find work, John decides to get his mother into rehab, consulting a counsellor (Michael Smiley) who tells him that she will require a lot more than the one week the state can provide.
Things take a bizarre turn from here that isn't very clearly defined, but then writer-director Gerard Barrett isn't interested in explaining all of the details, mainly because he's telling the story from John's frazzled perspective. John lives through all of this a moment at a time, so the past is irrelevant, he seeks brief moments of joy wherever he can find them, and he just gets on with the job at hand, however freaky it may be. Through all of this, Barrett keeps things intense and unsettling, never quite letting the audience get its balance. This bold approach makes us feel almost as overwhelmed as John does.
